It was disabled in the past but I decided to enable it by default (as in
other distros, like Fedora or Ubuntu).
The reason for this is, that nm-wait-online is required to make remote
mounts work or services in general which depend on network-online.target
Trading boot speed for that is acceptable imho and users who don't need
that can opt-out of nm-wait-online.
How can I "opt out"? I've tried disabling
NetworkManager-wait-online.service, but that didn't help. I found some
info about it for Arch, which suggested to mask the service rather than
disable it, but that hasn't worked either.
I'm not sure making the desktop wait for the network by default is a
good idea, because you sometimes need the desktop to be able to get
online, eg to choose a new wifi network and enter its password.
